Bridal Portraits at City Hall | Meridian Mississippi

This beautiful bride chose to have her bridal portraits at City Hall in Meridian, Mississippi.  City Hall is a beautiful building filled with neutral shades, white marble and custom window detailing that I am obsessed with!  It’s the perfect indoor backdrop for a bridal session in Meridian, MS.  

 Bayleigh was not sure if her bridal portraits would even happen since dress alterations always seem to take longer than expected.  A couple of weeks before the wedding it all magically worked out and Chlee Photography was able to capture these gorgeous photos. 

The bouquet I designed for her session was made with flowers and greenery available at the local wholesale florist that week. The local wholesale florist caterers to the traditional retail florists in our area, which means they don’t carry a lot of flowers used in weddings. The only white flowers available were white spray roses, making the selection very slim.  

Luckily I was able to get a few different types of greenery that helped complete the bouquet.  The greenery used was dusty miller, seeded eucalyptus and variegated pittosporum.  In the end it turned out as well as it could have with the flowers that were available to me that week!  Thankfully the bride loved greenery, or we could have been in trouble!

Meridian Mississippi Wedding | First Baptist Church + MSU Riley Center | Maddie + Andrew

 

MSU Riley Center Wedding Meridian Mississippi

Maddie and Andrew’s Meridian, Mississippi wedding was held at First Baptist Church and the MSU Riley Center.  Maddie’s love for fun, bright colors was incorporated into their elegant, boho wedding by using bright colored flowers with neutral linens, lots of pretty greenery and amazing lighting to soften the space.   Sterling Calligraphy designed a beautiful, custom watercolor logo, which was the initial starting point for the wedding design. The logo included shades of purple, green, yellow, pink and orange.  It was used on the save the date, wedding invitation and the wedding program as you will see below.  

The bright colors the bride chose matches her fun loving personality to a tee and shows throughout the film and photos.  She was the most chill and laid back bride I have ever met!

Collinsville, Mississsippi Wedding | Pine Forest Baptist Church + Soule Steam Works | Cady + Ben

collinsville-ms-wedding | meridian ms florist

This was one of the most emotional and sweetest weddings we have done in a long time. There are so many weddings that are just about the party (and that’s ok!), but this one was different in so many ways.  From the bride’s brother performing the ceremony, to the groom surprising the bride by playing guitar and singing the father/daughter dance.  Then singing to the bride… there was not a dry eye in the room!  It was the sweetest thing I had ever seen!  

Although it was a happy day for the couple, it was a sad day as well.  The grooms mother passed away unexpectedly just a few weeks before the wedding leaving the bride and groom and his family devastated. 🙁   I knew their wedding day was going to be full of emotions, but thankfully they had a lot of friends and  family there supporting and loving on them.
Here’s a few of my favorite photos from the day.  Enjoy!   (isn’t Cady gorgeous!!  So photogenic!)

Cady and Ben decided not to see each other before the ceremony; however, they did exchange gifts and prayed together without seeing each other face to face.

To honor Ben’s mom during the ceremony, Cady placed a pink garden rose in her seat when she walked down the aisle.  You can see the rose laying beside the groom in the photo below taken after the ceremony.
